I am trying to establish a connection for my gg-grandmother who I believe to be Milly Malinda BARRETT that married a John BAKER 7-1-1838 in Pike County IN. The marriage license is transcribed as BARNET, however, I believe it to be BARRETT due to the fact that John & Malinda (33, NC) are living right in the middle of BARRETTs in the 1850 census. Next to them are Henry (25, NC), Anderson (56, NC), Richard (31, NC), Isaac (30, NC, Wilson (32, NC).
I see that Jonathan BARRETT also had a daughter named Malinda Amelia (Milly) COATS. So it seems that Milly Malinda would fit into that naming scheme.
Land owner in the time frame of 1838 is Robert BARRETT.
Other BARRETT marriages around the time of Malinda BARRETT BAKER's are Jinny BARRETT & John BECK, Richard BARRETT & Mary BLACK, Richmond BARRETT & Matilda QUIGGINS, Spencer BARRETT & Catherine LEE, Squire Gaten BARRETT & Corinda JOHNSON.
Has anyone come across any wills? Any help would be appreciated.
